Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I mean it should be. I mean we need to make it an important meal. And by important I mean eating a healthy breakfast. Since mornings are usually busy for us especially on weekdays (and I suspect for most families too), of late I am trying to incorporate fruits wherever possible. A mixed fruit smoothie is something I make most mornings now using a mix of fresh and frozen fruits. It hardly takes more than 10 minutes including clean up of the blender. Btw, I love my new smoothie blender – Ninja Master Prep it was one of the cheapest ones that I found on amazon but I am so glad I got it. I chose it mainly because it seemed easy and light to handle. And that is a very important thing for me now because of my arthritis.
Last weekend while making french toast, I was going to make a smoothie as usual to accompany it when I suddenly thought of something. Why not add the fruits into the French toast? So I decided to make a French toast sandwich with a blueberry jelly in the middle. I rustled up a quick blueberry jelly using frozen blueberries. The kids just loved this blueberry French toast sandwich! I am guessing this one is going to be a keeper now and I am already thinking of all other variations that I can do here!
